A height-adjustable driver's seat and cruise control are now standard. See the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 models for sale near you
The Mirage G4 isn't going to be a resale-value king, which might be another reason to investigate CPO cars from Honda or Toyota. The daily drives will be more bearable with the extra equipment and their resale values should be stronger. If it has to be a new Mirage G4, try and stretch to the SE.

2019 Chevrolet Sonic -- More fun to drive than the G4 and with a nicer interior.
2019 Ford Fiesta -- Available as a hatchback or sedan. Far more enjoyable and better executed than the G4. And its excellent fuel economy (with the turbocharged 3-cylinder engine) compares well with the G4's, albeit at a higher price.
2019 Nissan Versa -- If passenger space is a priority, the Versa offers ample headroom and a massive back seat. There's not much else to recommend it, though.
2019 Toyota Yaris -- Has a more pleasant interior than the G4 and its engine has at least some pep by comparison.
Used Honda Civic -- Well-engineered, well-built and it's a fairly sure bet that Honda spent way more money developing it than Mitsubishi could ever devote to the Mirage G4. Look for one in Honda's certified pre-owned (CPO) program.
